Confidential

Sidera -- or Sid as everyone refers to her -- wants desperately to contribute more actively to the safety and prosperity of her home. She feels as if her big sister is trying to keep her from that goal, despite knowing that it is out of Vetra's desire to protect her. As teenagers of any species are wont to do, however, she is also absolutely convinced she is old enough to take care of herself. More than anything, she is looking for a way to prove that she's as useful and good as Vetra; even if that means using Vetra's connections or otherwise breaking the rules. In particular, she is looking for some closure as to Kallen Reh'je's wearabouts and final fate. She still hopes that he may be alive, somewhere in Heleus.

Life before the initiative

Sidera's life before the Initiative was one of relative comfort if otherwise turbulant, an easy middle class funded by the exploits of her older sister. These exploits were kept secret from her, the younger Nyx sister having no idea what her elder did to keep them comfortable. All she knows is that Vetra might sometimes be a few days on missions and would often come back with presents; or the pair would suddenly move to another settlement. She does not remember her mother at all and her father much less well than Vetra, owing to her young age when they left her.

While she and Vetra never traveled to the turian homeworld of Palaven after their father moved them away, Sid had a comfortable though quite nomadic existence, going to school as normal but seeing on average more than one school per year until her fifteenth birthday. While their position was more precarious than families with significant social and familial safety nets, her elder sister was successful in hiding much of that from the younger sibling. In a move as much out of practicality as out of rebellion against the Hierarchy, Sid did not enter boot camp as normal for a fifteen year old turian. Instead, the elder Nyx had already become involved with Kesh and had the younger begin the training required to join the Initiative.

Initiative: Pre-departure

Vetra entered the initiative by way of her employment to Kesh. This employment continued steadily as Sid entered what she presumed was a new kind of basic training. The next two years passed at whirl-wind pace, with Sid being identified and placed into a communications monitor and dispatcher training program early in the process. She excelled at the work, but was often found to be lacking in attention and effort by her instructors, falling near the middle of her class due to this. Still, she succeeded in qualifying to go to Andromeda on her own merits, being assigned to the Nexus with her big sister out of deference to maintaining family units.

During this time, she did antagonize a few of the fellow classmates, including a particular salarian that saw her hardly trying and performing better than he did. He attributed this to her familial connection, while convinced that he entered entirely on his own merits while ignoring the fact that his parents contributed significant donations to the Initiative to ensure his entry. His name was Kallen Reh'je, and one day he cornered her in the cafeteria and began to tell her of all the things he found out her sister did to provide them with their comfortable life before the Initiative. She stood, silent and stony faced while listening to the litany of crimes he accused Vetra of and finally, once his tirade was complete, said a few words. "Vetra did what she had to. I am proud of her, and I am proud of what I have accomplished. She did not buy our way into this, and I damn well did not expect to ride in on her name!" Stunned by the strength of her conviction, the even, measured, and confident tone she delivered it in, Kallen merely stood dumbly as she walked out.

This was the turning point of her training, with her later performance improving enough to get her placed for additional training rather than going into service during the construction of the Nexus. This additional training included cross-training in engineering and computer aided analysis fields. In particular her advanced training involved significant computer intelligence activaties, perhaps identifying her as a potential computer security expert.

Preparations for departure began aboard the Nexus and Sid insisted on staying awake as long as possible. She volunteered for any job that would allow her to stay out of cryo for even a few days longer, serving as the voice of Nexus traffic control during the final days before their departure. Among the last crew entering cryo, Sid and her elder sister were placed next to each other.

Initiative: The Longest Sleep

The placement directly next to each other was fortuitous for the Nyx sisters, as not even three sections down was the worst of the Scourge damage to the Nexus' cryo pods, leaving many upper leadership dead or crippled before awakening. The Nexus was horribly damaged, and during those early days the section the Nyx sisters slept in was very nearly crippled multiple times in those desperate early days. Sid is still unaware of how very close she came to never waking up.

Remaining in cryo sleep for three out of the four years the Nexus has been in the Heleus cluster, Vetra finally managed to secure having Sid awakened to an Initiative where almost everything that could go wrong had. She took it with that inner strength built growing up as she had with her elder sister, eager to get to work and be useful even before the doctors cleared her from recovery. The early days were hard, though when she could hide it from her sister she would share her rations with less fortunate dextro individuals that were awake and living on the Nexus. Life continued, as uneventful as this unexpectedly harsh frontier could be, for many months after her being thawed.

During this time, she encountered Kallen Reh'je once again, this time as a communications officer on one of the exploratory shuttles. They bonded over their shared experience during training and surprisingly began to develop a friendship. It is truly an odd couple friendship, with Kallen being the disrespectful, devil-may-care type to cover for his insecurity regarding their tenuous grip to life in the Heleus cluster while Sid carried herself with confidence and comfort.

Her wake up call to the danger came when Kallen's shuttle failed to report two months ago. It is presumed lost, but no confirmation has been found so he could still be alive somewhere in Heleus. Meanwhile, drawing on her inner strength Sid was able to face this and move forward with her life -- though it has driven her to make the situation better, to do more than simply her job in fixing the problems the Initiative finds itself in. It is with this conviction that she faces an uncertain future in the Heleus Cluster.
